Aurals have a very detailed history and alot of what is here is told orally and passed down through generations. This is also a very generalized format, with so much more going on in between the main events. You can use the events to RP! You can have your Aurals story take place in any age!
Age 1: Creation
Years 1-5: Aurals have been created and have been left to roam all over Najwa by the Gods. They are learning what they are and who they are as a species.
Year 10: The existing clans map out neutral areas and create the rules of the neutral areas.
Year 20: They devise the Najwarian Guard Clan so that the neutral areas can be guarded and rogue Aurals can be kept in check.
Years 6-100: A relative time of peace as Aural’s are far and in between. There is enough food to go around and no need to fight.
Age 2: The War of Gods
Year 110: Senka the Black Witch wipes out a population of innocent Aurals to prove they are worthless. They should all be powerful; they should all have the Energy. This causes retaliation from the Warriors, they then set chase to Senka
Years 111- 130: The weather is out of whack. Earthquakes, hurricanes, tornadoes, and volcanoes ravage land. Very few mortal Aurals remain when Senka is banished to the Underworld for good. She can no longer set foot onto mortal land.
Year 113: A mortal, Alpha Magnus takes over the Najwarian guard clan after half of it is wiped out during an earthquake. He starts to spread word of the Gods being careless and vain. Aurals are keen to believe it after what is happening.
Year 115: Alpha Magnus has amassed a vast number of Aurals. He’s going after clan after clan, telling them to drop their beliefs or die. During a time of great pain and bloodshed, there is even more. Most join Alpha Magnus.
Year 120: Alpha Magnus has the largest clan on record, 100+ Aurals at his command. He rules the clan and the land around him with brutality. Anyone who defies him dies. But, in the secluded corners of Najwa, there is light, Aurals who remain untouched by Magnus’s words and the destruction of the Gods.
Years: 131 – 200: The Gods slowly nurse their creations back to health and prosperity.
Year 135: In the meantime Alpha Io (an Oracle with Water energy) comes into power over the northern reaches of Najwa. She does not like Magnus’s brutality and beliefs, yet she does not go to him. She stays in her frozen kingdom for several more years, awaiting his arrival.
Year 138: Magnus hears of Io and her kingdom of free-thinking Aurals. He marches his army to the northern reaches. Io has sent her subjects south, around Magnus and his followers to keep them safe. She backs up to the ocean, and Magnus gloats, asking her where her army is, who’s going to save her now, surely not the gods. In the light of the moon, Io unleashes the might of the waves behind her. She cleanses the innocent Magnus has with them, floating them to safe areas. Magnus drowns, his hateful and evil cronies dying with him. This expenditure of power leaves Io weak. When her subjects return, in her place is the Pillar of Io, a twisting spear of frozen waves to remember her sacrifice.
Year 139: The rest of Najwa hears of Magnus’s death and most rejoice. They no longer have to live her fear. Many make pilgrimages to the Pillar of Io to leave offerings.
Age 3: The Last Cataclysm
Years 200 – 205: Again, peace has settled over Najwa.
Year 201: Senka infiltrates the mind of Warrior Viggo, letting loose a terrible lightning bolt. It strikes through the ground, releasing her from her prison. Senka is free to cause malady, but she is following the rules. Sol and Noctis order the Warriors not to go after her. There cannot be light without dark.
Years 202 – 250: Senka has devised her plan, to let loose the most violent element (in her eyes) lightning. She slinks around, entering the minds of mortals, telling them to search for her. She blackens many a heart and gives them Arcane energy. Some withstand her though, alerting the Warriors to what she is doing.
Year 222: Senka has found Omega Purslane. A soul who has never known any good and just wants to kill everyone who has wronged him. She easily infiltrates his mind and convinces him to do her bidding. He’s small and unthreatening, which allows him to go about undetected.
Year 224: The Warriors lock Viggo away for fear Senka will get her to destroy them. Viggo detests this, but understands what must be done.
Year 230: Purslane has gained many minds through others deemed weak and worthless. All are connected to Senka. Word has spread through the land that lightning energy is dangerous and harmful.
Year 231: Viggo watches as her Aurals, those with lightning enegy, are killed, as pups are slaughtered before they open their eyes because of the imagined harm they’d cause. In a storm unlike any other, Viggo escapes to hunt down Senka herself.
Year 232 – 290: The skies are constantly dark with roiling clouds and rain falls in great quantities. The Warriors cannot help their distressed sister, but they try to make to make the best for the other Aurals suffering because of the darkness and massive plant/food die off.
Year 255: Purslane creates an army of darkness. This army terrorizes the shadows, taking Aurals but not killing them. They’ve heard stories of Magnus and his army, they do not want that again. The Najwarian Guard becomes very prominent.
Year 280: A light in the darkness appears. Canna, a simple mortal with knowing beyond her years faces down Purslane. She almost has him outwitted when she is killed. They desecrate her and with the Gods failing, they decide action is needed, that Aurals need someone to pray to for their sick and wounded. Canna is brought back by the Gods and given power, some say it was the soul of Io, coming back to fight evil once more, as the flood came. The White Witch she was called and she cleansed the land, cleansed Senka from the minds of Aurals. She saved the innocent, those who did not deserve to die, and she gave some of Purslanes followers a second chance. Viggo lets up her storm.
Year 281: Purslane escapes Canna’s cleansing. He hides out in a desert cave, speaking with Senka and going insane.
Year 282: Purslane reemerges. Senka, blind with rage and power, has let him have some of her power, but Purslane has taken more than she thought. He becomes a demi-god and reaches the Warriors. Senka is left with half her power and slinks away as Purslane takes on the Warriors with force. In a great cataclysm caused by all the gods powers connecting with Purslanes evil, most life on Najwa is decimated, as well as Purslane himself.
Year 283 – 299: The healing years. Canna, and Vidar, the Nature God, rebuild the land with help from the other warriors. They find some Aurals have survived. Senka has slinked back into a dark corner of the underworld to bide her time and rebuild her power.
Age 4: Current Age –
Everything has started off anew after the last cataclysm.
Year 1: Modern Aurals have made their way back over the land. It has been decreed that Alpha’s can rule over their clan as they see fit. This is to prevent armies like those of Magnus and Purslane, where Alpha’s can rule over many clans.
Year 2: Jinx, born sometime in the last age, has founded Blackwater. Senka has reached him, only slightly, as he has enough strength to refuse her most fervent demands.
